Go solar at Equinox Solar Pot Luck at Valley of the Moon
Saturday, September 24th
Solar Potluck and Exhibition!
“Come on out to Valley of the Moon as Citizens for Solar and the Solar Guild present their Third Annual Equinox Solar Potluck. Experience the flavors of solar-cooked food and learn about solar technology by viewing solar appliances, exhibitions (ovens, fountains, coolers, lights, electrical systems) and solar arts.”
DATE: Saturday, September 24th
TIME: Noon to Sunset. (Solar cooks are invited to arrive as early as 9:30 a.m. to set up)
POTLUCK DINNER: 5 p.m.
“We will have speakers and acoustic musicians throughout the day. Come out to cook or come out to play and learn! If you’re staying for the potluck please bring some “solar” food to share: salad, watermelon, berries, beverages (NO ALCOHOL), etc. Ice is always welcome.
Bring your own eating utensils (plate/bowl and fork/spoon) and help make the Equinox Solar Potluck a waste-free event. Make sure you wear comfy shoes, a brimmed hat and sunscreen. The festival will be held come sun, rain or wind!

We got to this solar event a bit late today, but enjoyed the solar cooking and pot luck food. Very nice, cool setting at Valley of the Moon.
